Location: Perth CBD
I’ve popped up to the food court at one40william street, above the underground train station, and tried a few of the vendors such as GR Acropolis and Sarpino’s. Another vendor which I decided to try with an offer from the Eat Drink Perth 2012 Passport is Curry Munchers. They had an offer for 25% off so after a look through the menu which has several meals revolving around Indian breads as well as curries, I went for the 2 curry combo in which I chose butter chicken and lamb korma. I also chose an aloo paratha which is an Indian bread stuffed with potato and fried. I got a very generous serve of rice with a yellowish colouring via the spices and loose grains. They also gave generous serves of the curries I chose with plenty of meat and curry. The butter chicken was delicious, better than the version I just tried at the Indian Garden Restaurant a few days earlier. I was presented with three large chunks of tender chicken with a very dark orangy colouring, typical of the look of tandoori chicken. The curry itself had a lovely creaminess and the right mix of sweetness and was excellent. The lamb korma was quite good too but the lamb was a little tough. While I was eating that, the kitchen was making my aloo paratha which was brought out on a metal tray with a serve of raitha. The raitha was disappointing but a lot of Indian restaurants seem to serve raitha in this fashion – being a little sourish. The version I eat at home and which I’ve eaten at the odd Indian restaurant is sweeter. The aloo paratha was nice and flat and looked the real deal. You could tell it was stuffed with potato bhaji. However, biting in to the bread, the bread was very nice but the potato bhaji lacked the right mix of salt to deliver the correct level of seasoning. It required more potato. It was good but it didn’t deliver. Really good value all up for just $11 with the discount (normally would have been $13.50) and I was absolutely stuffed. I think the aloo paratha was a bit too filing. I had salad for dinner.
Curry Munchers Food Review Summary
Verdict: Yes it’s a food court but like Thali, it doesn’t mean that they can’t deliver on taste. I loved the butter chicken which was delicious but the lamb korma wasn’t to the same level of tastiness but still enjoyable. Very generous servings of the curries with plenty of meat and loose rice. The aloo paratha lacked seasoning in terms of salt but was good otherwise. The raitha is more on the sour side and is not to my taste. There is good range of menu options and curries available, both meat and vegetable, so you shouldn’t be limited for choice and they are well priced. The flavours are very good so I don’t think you would be disappointed in terms of grabbing a meal from a food court. Cash only.
Recommendation: Worth visiting again
